Abstract : This report presents a detailed description of an Audio/Video Recording System developed to study the feasibility and training potential of in-flight video recordings through the gunsight and of the instrument panel of an F-4E aircraft. The purpose of the study was to assess the value of the system as an aid in air-to-air and air-to-ground gunnery training. Flight tests were conducted in an F-4E aircraft at Nellis AFB, during which air-to-air and air-to-ground weapon delivery missions were recorded. Results of the tests proved the value of audio/video recording for training and mission evaluation, but indicated a requirement 9for a higher resolution video system. Additional advantages and limitations of the equipment and the tape recordings obtained are described, and it is recommend that additional tests be made with equipment capable of producing higher resolution video tapes.
